    Pros

    Abbott pays their employees well with bonuses and annual pay increases each year. Great benefits package.

    Cons

    Abbott has outsourced all Finance jobs to India eliminating thousands of positions for US employees to save costs.

    Advice to Management

    Don't eliminate positions of your loyal US employees who truly care about quality service to your internal and external customers replacing them with an outsourcing company in India.

    Pros

    The benefits offered under Abbott were very good and would be considered competitive with the other big players in the industry.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Great Pay, Great Employees, Great Customers, a Few Great Managers, old days were fun, exciting and fulfilling, most advanced products in the industry,

    Cons

    Poor Employee Management, Poor Performance Review, Work Environment is hostile, Over-worked to the point where its hardly manageable, Other dept's are under-worked to the point that distractions are the majority of your day, Poor Managers that resent their talent and gossip more then they would perform, antiquated systems and overly complicated processes to compensate for them, Fanciful offices for Senior Management

    Advice to Management

    Focus on empowering the employees like you said you were going to do, don't procrastinate on the goals for improving the business, focus on improving your managers capabilities to successfully develop/maintain good teams, focus on improving business systems instead of working on complicating the process in order to make the system function, recognize the good talent and reward them, recognize the bad managers and reprimand them, focus on your communication with the customers and avoid any more voluntary recalls and unnecessary back-orders.
